I've suffered from many symptoms for a number of years now and they don’t seem to get much better.
These include depression, anxiety, sleep problems, vitiligo (since I was teenager but very slow spread, premature grey hairs (gradual progression since 1 year ago), acne (moderate since teenager), low sex drive, lack of erections, no sporadically erections, obsessiveness, slight ridging on nails, restless legs, feeling weak.
I binge drink at the weekend about 40+ units of alcohol, but have no alcohol in the week. I don’t smoke or do drugs.
Blood tests have revealed MCV raised at 100 - retest found this to lower to 98 so far after 3 months of recommended vitamin B supplement - hoping it will lower further as I keep supplementing and try to lower alcohol intake to just once a week and skip a week or two to give my body a rest.
I had the test for IF Antibody,
Result was 2.7
Result: within range.
Cortisol seemed high at 630, range max was 550, but time of day was confusing as my sleep pattern was messed up when taken. My DHEAs were a bit high out the range at 15+ range max was 13.
Thyroid is fine. Liver fine. Etc.
So maybe it’s the alcohol and a vitamin B deficiency that has caused these symptoms as this is pointed out basically in the MCV test?
The only other thing I considered was Cushing’s or Addison’s but doubt them but who knows? What are your thoughts? Both are linked to a number of symptoms and also cortisol levels - or am I just wasting time energy and money on that?
